A man has died in a shooting Monday night.

The shooting was reported around 9:15 p.m. in the 2200 block of Exeter Drive, near Lake Mead and Hollywood boulevards.

The man later died at University Medical Center.

The Clark County coroner identified him as 42-year-old Robin Dion McBride of Las Vegas.

13 Action News was told he lived feet away from where he was shot in the parking lot. It appears that he was arguing with the shooter before the gunfire. The victim's girlfriend was inside the apartment but did not witness the shooting.

Armando Santa Cruz was with the man just before he died.

"Just to see somebody that we love and we care about in the ground not knowing what's going to happen and just seeing his pulse going away was the hardest thing for me," he said.

This is the 3rd homicide investigated by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in 2017.

Witnesses told police multiple teenage suspects were seen running away after shots were fired. No arrests have been made. Police do not suspect gang activity.
